Antenna question – locked vs unlocked phones

This is a stupid question that I probably already know the answer to but will ask anyway. Despite being one unlocked and the other locked tied to a specific provider, are there any differences in the internals, specifically the antennas? I’m quick to say no but having my first unlocked phone S21 on Verizon, I am having nothing but problems having the phone stay connected to the network.

I’ve attempted multiple network setting refreshes, 3 different SIM cards, updating any and all software/apps that can be, wiping the cache, wiping the phone, using network extender, nothing makes a difference. Both Verizon and Samsung have pretty much washed their hands of it. So my only option left is to send it to Samsung for repair, if there’s any, besides throwing it in the trash and getting something else.

Sharing is caring!
